Get Your Home Ready for Spring at the Oak Lawn Home Show

April 07, 2013

Chicago home showsPicture this: The weekend has arrived and you have a to-do list that’s looking more like a classic novel than a simple list of chores. You’re not sure where to start since it ranges from running to the hardware store for upgraded shutters to the home and garden nursery for some bright perennials to your favorite home décor store to pick up new artwork to display for that party you’re hosting next month and then finally to the farmers market for tonight’s dinner. It’s a fairly typical spring Saturday, right? But this time, instead of chugging two cups of coffee and loading up your pack mule for your statewide trek, you take your time and head over to a one-stop shop where all of the things you need are magically available to you: the Oak Lawn Home Show!

Saturday, April 13 through Sunday, April 14 at the Oak Lawn South Pavilion at 94th Street and Oak Park Avenue, the Chicago Home Show has you covered. Produced by The Home ShowS since 1986, it’s a veritable smorgasbord of commercial and residential building products, maintenance, repairs and services. Local contractors and tradesman will even be available to assist you with your every need as well as provide advice for those glorious, however ambitious, projects you have planned for your home or business. They even suggest bringing the plans you have, so that the experienced local firms can provide sound advice and tips!

Here you will find everything for the kitchen with experts in custom carpentry, countertops, and cabinetry on hand. There will even be cooking demonstrations with meal ideas fit for a week night dinner or a dinner party for 12. They’ll have siding experts and door and window designers/consultants to assist you with those shutters. Hoping that your spouse is home cleaning out the gutters while you’re running errands? Well, they’ve got roofing and gutters on tap as well.

If your yard is a big concern, they’ll have shrub and tree professionals on deck to make sure it’s in peak condition this summer. Speaking of decks, there will also be exhibitions specializing in patios and decks. Maybe when you noted your pitiful yard on the way out of the house this morning, you also noticed your garage door was acting a little wonky. They’ll have garage systems experts waiting for you.

Don’t worry about home décor either, because they’ll have literally everything including the kitchen and bathroom sink! After you peruse the bathroom inventory, take a peek at the local artists. They’ll provide artwork to bring home with you to adorn your walls. (After all, you’ll want a memento to remember this weekend-saver.)

After your to-do list is complete, you’ll have enough time left over to head to the spa. But, you won’t need to because they’ll have chiropractors on hand for that much needed adjustment!

They’ve obviously thought of everything. Have you? Go ahead and pile more onto your list of things to do for spring, because it’s likely you can knock it all out in one weekend with The Home ShowS’ Oak Lawn Home Show.
